Waited over 30 minutes in the lough bar, drinks or food still didn’t arrive. After a further 15 minutes waiting we got up and left. Staff behind the bar extremely rude & waiting staff in some areas have a severe lack of training. 5 star hotel with 2 star service!

Had an overnight stay with my fiancé as a little get away. Hotel staff were all pleasant, two girls on reception were very friendly and helpful. Room was beautiful with a big bathroom! I enjoyed a bath on the Saturday night and the ESPA products left for use were really nice! We had a meal in the Cultra Inn and couldn’t fault it, our waiter was so polite! Breakfast next morning was a buffet, again friendly staff, one lady offered my fiancé a hand when she seen he had a bit more than what he could carry. Spa booked in hourly slots, my fiancé went to a spin class in the hotel gym and then joined me at the spa after. Spa staff were all friendly. I particularly liked that we were allowed into the spa after checkout times as we had stayed in July in another well known NI hotel who wouldn’t let us use the spa after check out at 11, so I was delighted we could do that at the culloden!

The whole check in process and check out is a nightmare. There is no valley parking, no one to help with bags, no one to guide to room, you are randomly pointed in the direction of lift and when you get it wrong which I did told it was. your fault. Check out a large queue and one person working - it had to ask for someone else to be found to check us out quickly. It is most certainly not up to SLH standards.The staff are clueless about international standards and unhelpful.

Stayed here for 2 nights for a wedding and was very disappointed. A pretty hotel with lots of potential, let down by atrocious service. Cons: SERVICE The worst service I have come across in a hotel. Long waiting times to order. Cups and glasses not collected. Wedding service was terrible- no glasses given with drinks, only a small variety of drinks available at the bar, only 1 bar person working for the whole wedding, staff forgot to fulfil whole parts of the wedding package (ice cream and popcorn machine). I imagine it was stressful for the bride & groom. Staff seemed inexperienced and helpless. Pros: BEDROOM and BREAKFAST Nice bedroom, comfortable bed and a huge bath tub. Breakfast was buffet style with a large selection and was of good quality. Overall, the price tag is much too big for a hotel with such poor service.
